Now that the truth still isn’t out there, despite Tory Lanez dropping an album around it, many fans are even more confused as to how they can process all of the events around two of their favorite musicians. Now, other artists are weighing in on Tory’s response, or lack thereof.
T.I. was one of the few people that spoke up and said he’d connected with Tory Lanez after the event that shook the hip-hop world went down, with Tip trying to help the Canadian native navigate the issues facing him.
“Listen, I don’t know, man. But, I spoke to him and he said the sh*t didn’t happen like that. I said, ‘Well, you need to be saying something, bruh. How did it happen?’ And he said he couldn’t say nothing about how it did actually happen. I told him I understood that. I said, ‘Man, you can’t expect nobody to ignore the facts that are being presented if you don’t have any other conclusive facts that can overturn these. You got to say something, bruh.’ If you ain’t going to say nothing, you can’t expect nobody else to. I ain’t about to just shut up when you got facts out here that say it’s a woman been shot at the hands of another Black man within the culture. We’ve got to speak out on that.”

A respected figure in hip-hop from Megan’s home state spoke up on her behalf and let everyone know that the situation was serious, and Megan was not the one in the wrong. Bun B of the group UGK thinks Tory Lanez had “no reason to shoot this girl.”
“I tried to be impartial and cool about this, but f**k that man,” said Bun B in a posted video.
“Tory Lanez, and I don’t care if this go viral or none of that, I’m from Houston. If somebody would have done something to Megan in this city, we would have rolled. Megan in L.A. by herself. It’s just her and T-Farris. She ain’t got her mama no more, her mama is gone. Her daddy is gone. Her grandmother is gone. All the people that loved and cared about her unconditionally, that cared about her and would have protected her, ain’t there. So, as an OG in Houston, I’m standing up.”
He went on to shame the men that aren’t speaking up on Megan’s behalf, as an OG and as a man himself.
“Tory Lanez did some whore [stuff], period,” he continues. “Yeah, I know Tory, I know his manager and all them, f– all that though. If the man on drugs, get him some goddamn rehab. If the man got mental health issues, get him some therapy. But you not gon’ sit here and shoot this girl and we not gon’ say nothing. That sh*t not real n—a sh*t. It’s not. Anytime a man hurts a woman, that’s obsession. That ain’t love. He had no reason to shoot this girl.”
It’s definitely not love and now that Tory has released a 17-track album, even declaring on the song “Solar Drive @ Night” – a nod to where the whole altercation went down a few months ago – that he wants Megan “back.”
Now, Rick Ross is trolling Lanez’s response and him dropping an album, instead of protecting Black women. In two videos, Ross said that Lanez made a “poor decision” with choosing to release an album. In the second video, Ross posted a Smart Car, “Aye, I just bought a car for Tory Lanez,” before congratulating him for his album going “double acrylic” upon its release. Ouch.
